Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn: Tam-Tara Deepcroft Instanced Dungeon Video

SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe CitadelPosts: 21,186MMORPG.COM Staff Epic

Square Enix has released a new video from Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. The video shows alpha footage fo the Tam-Tara Deepcroft instanced dungeon and players taking on the monsters within. Check it out!


  • The instanced dungeon in this video is designed for low level players. Targeting and actions are demonstrated with the mouse instead of keyboard for greater clarity.

  • The battle system is currently undergoing significant revision, including changes to all damage algorithms and the claim system.

    You're able to move while attacking; the animations just aren't in there yet so they don't show it.  The exclusion to this is casting a magic spell from what I've been able to tell (in terms of needing to stand still to cast; you can move instantly, but it will be interrupted).  You can see the Dragoon moving when he throws his lance in the last few seconds of the video, as an example.

    There should be an interview explaining this at ffxivcore.com dated a few months ago or something.   :)

    Looks very shiny, and hitting the enemy feels nice. Looks much better, we shall see though.

     

    Also, SKILL CLICKER! AHHHHH

    I'd talk about their plans to add a little more meat to the fighting but certain forms I've agreed to dictate I don't. Suffice it to say it APPEARS as though they are listening to the criticism this time.

    Just like every other if not all Final Fantasy games, ever.  Yeah, I'm fine with that.

    Meh, i've grown away from it. Sure it was fun on the PS2 but it's not my thing in MMOs anymore.

    tahts not true. Even the single player ones the character jumped towards the monster to hit it then jumped back. The newer versions added improved mobility. This here in ARR is generic stand still asian combat. Dont get me wrong, ill have a blast the first free month of ARR but i wont sub if the dont tweak lack of mobility a bit... specially mages, and archers (or all ranged classes to be exact), fixable with some instant spells

    I remember my biggest gripe with ffxiv was the absolutely horrible lag. If there were more than 5 people near you , it took ages for them to appear on screen (i played from europe). If they dont fix that, i dont really care what other changes they implement.

    Looks fine but the strong points of  any Final Fantasy mmo has been the strong community. Looking forward to that a lot.

    Two words in this game that makes me never want to play it. "Instanced" & "Apartments". Instanced dungeons are decades old tech and why would I want my avatar to have a small apartment when other mmo's like Aion allow for mansions, or full-sized houses even in Lotro? The answer is I wouldn't.

    you don't suppose the housing can be expanded later on?

    And instanced dungeons are not decades old tech. I seem to remember playing lineage 2 waaaayyyy back at  launch and the dungeons were not instanced.
